Information Worker 2010 VM - Is boot from VHD possible

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I've downloaded the Information Worker 2010 VM from: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=751fa0d1-356c-4002-9c60-d539896c66ce&displaylang=en I don't have a Windows 2008 R2 Hyper-V Host to test this out on (only got Windows 7 on my laptop at present), does anyone know if it's possible to use the VHD as a bootable VHD? I simply tried to add a bcdedit entry to point at the VHD but when I tried to boot it blue-screened and restarted my laptop. Does this require running the bcdboot command on the VHD? Cheers, Colin

WSS Lists - Lookup field information missing in Excel 2010

Hi, I've got this xls workbook which contains a two-way synchronized SharePoint list. This WSS list contains columns which are related to other lists: for instance the list we're using is a list of assignments, where an assignment is related to an accounting period. Our server also has another list with all accounting periods. Both lists are related since the assignment list as an accounting period column of lookup type which uses the accounting period list as a source. In previous versions of Excel, the output is that the accounting period field is a combobox populated with all availalble accounting periods. Thanks to that, the user can easily link an assignment to an accounting period by selecting a value in this combobox and synchronizing. This works great with Excel 2003 and 2007, however in 2010 (same workbook, consuming the same lists) related information doesn't appear. The combobox is empty and as a consequence the user gets a data validation error since the value in the cell isn't among available values. Is there something special I should do to enable this feature in Excel 2010? Regards, Carl 

User information list properties SP Foundation 2010

When trying to view properties of user information list in SPD 2010, I get the following error "SharePoint designer cannot display the content of this view (...)" I am logged in as administrator for both farm and site. I can view content of the list in a browser, but I cannot access the list as a lookup column. It works with WSS 3/SPD 2007 on another server.

Personnel information -web part in SharePoint 2010?


In SharePoint 2003 there was a web part which could display all the site users in it with contact details and other information.

In SharePoint 2010 this kind of web part doesn't seem to exist(or am I totally blind?)?
The Site users -web part only displays the username, which is not enough. I would like to display 100+ user profiles(name, phone, location, email, etc.) in a web part with paging.

Is there a web part to do this?
I could create a contact list and manually insert all the user information in there, but with 100+ user profiles it is quite a lot of work(plus if someone updates their info, it would have to be modified to the list as well...).

Can Information inside of SP 2010 lists be pulled systematically to and SQL DB?

We have a team that wants a few fields of data pulled from the SP list directly to an existing SQL database. Can this be done and if so...what app would we need?

ASP.NET, HTML, JavaScript Snippet Support (VS 2010 and .NET 4.0 Series)

This post covers another useful improvement in VS 2010 - HTML/ASP.NET/JavaScript snippet support. Snippets allow you to be more productive within source view by allowing you to create chunks of code and markup that you can quickly apply and use in your application with a minimum of character typing.

Visual Studio has supported the concept of "snippets" for VB and C# in previous releases - but not for HTML, ASP.NET markup and JavaScript. With VS 2010 we now support snippets for these content types as well.

Clean Web.Config Files (VS 2010 and .NET 4.0 Series)

.NET 4 includes a new version of the CLR, and a new .NET 4 specific machine.config file (which is installed side-by-side with the one used by .NET 2, .NET 3 and .NET 3.5).

The new .NET 4 machine.config file now automatically registers all of the ASP.NET tag sections, handlers and modules that we've added over the years, including the functionality for:

.ASP.NET Dynamic Data
.ASP.NET Routing (which can now be used for both ASP.NET WebForms and ASP.NET MVC)
.ASP.NET Chart Control (which now ships built-into ASP.NET V4)
What this means is that when you create a new "Empty ASP.NET application" project in VS 2010, you'll find that the new default application-level web.config file is now clean and simple:

Architecture Tools in VSTS 2010

Designing new functionality on existing applications can be daunting. There are always differences between the original design and the current implementation.

The new Architecture tools within Visual Studio Team System 2010 help you understand the application you have, design new functionality you need, and validate that your design and your implementation do not deviate.

VB and C# enhancements in VS 2010

In Visual Studio 2010, we've made several enhancements to our two most popular languages, Visual Basic and C#, to give programmers all the tools they need to build great software no matter which language they prefer.

The Visual Basic team focused on adding productivity features to the language so developers can get more done in fewer lines of code. The most common customer request for Visual Basic is to remove the underscore ("_") character when breaking a code statement across multiple lines in most cases. Visual Basic 10 introduces implicit line continuation, which removes the need for the underscore character in most cases.

Code Optimized Web Development Profile (VS 2010 and .NET 4.0 Series)

When you first run VS 2010 it prompts you to select an IDE profile to use. The profile you select will configure how tool windows are displayed/docked in the IDE by default and set the default keyboard shortcuts. You can then customize any of these settings by using the Tools->Options menu within the IDE and then override/change them. You can also later reset your profile and pick a different one by choosing the Tools->Import and Export Settings menu command.

VS 2010 and .NET 4 Series

VS 2010 and .NET 4 are the next major releases of our developer tools and framework. Together they contain a ton of new functionality and improvements that I think you'll really like, and which make building applications of all types easier, faster and better. The improvements range from nice small tweaks to major, major enhancements - and can be found across the .NET Framework, the languages, and the IDE.
